In addition to providing a strong background in the fundamentals of traveling waves on guided structures and free space, this book considers the more commonly used sources in aoptic and microwave communication. The generation, transmission, and detection of ectromagnetic waves are also stressed through the use of clear, practical applications. The author devotes a complete chapter to the characteristics of transmission lines, and two chapter to the behavior of transient and steady-state current/voltage on such lines. The book also treats the various techniques emplyed in impedance measuring and matching. Antenna fundamentals and radiowave propagation are also discussed. New Content features in the second edition include: a New chapter on Fiber optics with current trends, a new chapter on satellite communications with emphasis on the TVRO system, a new section on microwave sources, expanded coverage of antennas and antenna arrays.
